    OK, while most people are agonizing over the price, I'm sort of thinking about double-dipping.

    2 big reasons:

    1- I've got my Combaticon shelf tricked out with FP Bruticus, AND in robot mode Voyager Onslaught, FP Munitioner, FP Explorer, PCC heavy tread, and I'm just waiting on Takara Vortex to finish it off. (I've also got the Kidbash Complete Brutality and a few G1-mold variants as well), and having BOTH forms on display kicks ass!

    2- Since we know the limbs are swappable, if one double-dips on everyone (depending on release schedule), once COULD have a sort-of completed Devestator months(years??) in the ol' display a head of time. With the ultimate goal of dual-display, eventually being achieved...

    Also would hedge bets agianst the whole thing falling apart 4 bots in...

    I haven't actually ADDED the second preorder yet, but I am SORELY tempted...if there wasn't so much other stuff going on right now too, I think I'd already have done it..

    I preordered 2. I don't normally buy 2 of the same figure other than for trade bait. However, I think this set will be pretty special, and it deserves to be displayed separately as well as combined. Did the same with the FP combiners.

    That's a good point, but that could be hidden pretty well for a few months with the right pose...hopefully (and I have faith everything will be fine) it would only be a temporary issue...

    Yeah, I'm deeply happy with my doubled-up Combaticons, and I think these guys might deserve the same love, otherwise their very nicely done individual forms will largely be ignored for all time, and with the Constructicons (more so than any of the other teams save the Preds and Comabts) I really kind of care about them as individual characters, rather than just thinking about them as "the plane guys" or "the resuce guys" or "the fish" the way I do with some of the other teams...

    Even with Knockout floating around these days, Hook still holds the crown for "most likely to be G1 Decepticon medic" for instance..

    Yes, unfortunately I am strongly considering doubling up.

    Not for display but for that fact that once Devy is completely released the after market price of this thing will range from $1200 - $2000.

    Not that I should share this insight but if you can afford to buy 2 now you will eventually end up selling one and getting yours for free.

    Also a valid reason to do it, mind you, I know me, I won't be able to part with the spare when it gives me delicious display options :lol 

    Now if I TRIPLED up, I could probably bring myself to part with a set...but that would get pretty expensive pretty fast...

    I wish we had firm and reliable release schedules to work with, it would make the planning MUCH easier..

    I have 6 FP bruticii, and then I've preordered three ExGravers.

    Whatever.

    Well we all know YOU'RE 3rd-Party hard core :) 

    I'm pretty devoted too, but my resources are just limited enough that I have to be careful where I go nuts...

    Oh, trust me... these things are an investmment as much as shelf filler. You can best believe that in a year when (hopefully) values have skyrocketed, that you'll be seeing 3 or four of my Bruticii up for sale. :lol

    God, I wish I had the disposable income of some of the people in this thread. I think I'll just stick to one of each component.
